Slow boot

Post by jave »

Hi,

I've just upgraded my system from a FX8350 to a Ryzen 7 2700X CPU and a Gigabyte B450M-DS3H board with 32GB DDR4 memory.

I also cloned my old SSD to a new 256GB PCIe M.2 SSD. System boots up as expected, however it takes a while before I see the Linux desktop. Like 15 seconds or so.

Is there anyway to speed things up? There is a Fast Boot option in BIOS but isn't that more of a Windows thing?

we first need to find out what boot item may be taking longest , then may be able to advise if it can be changed.
Please go to a terminal and enter this command and post the output in your next post.

I really don't see much that can be improved upon in that list, so not sure there is any real way to speed it up any further. Others may have suggestions.
